Advice on Posting a New Topic


#1

I post questions infrequently but they are often never seen again! I get a bounce back message saying that the topic is with the moderator but it never seems to get released. Is this usual?


#2

I cannot help, but wanted you to know I can see this!


#3

But really, am I just being impatient? My questions/new posts take 5-7 days to be cleared by the moderator, by which time I’ve resorted to other solutions. Is this the usual time frame for me to adjust my expectations?


#4

I have not started that many topics, so truly hard to say. Maybe email directly and ask?


#5

I’ve tried that, but radio silence!


#6

I feel like mine popped up quickly, but it’s been a while. I secind the advice to email, perhaos to Ann or Kay, if you don’t get a reply? Perhaps there’s a system bug.

Dear friends,

So sorry to have left you all hanging–the problem is me! The place where new topics are moderated is buried in the Bermuda Triangle of our site, and there is no notification system to let me know when a new topic has been posted. When I discover a new topic has been created, I approve it as soon as possible–but I’m dismayed when I find a topic that has been patiently waiting too long. Ugh! I do think I can disable the moderation requirement altogether, which means that a new topic will appear instantly. Here’s to a better future for new topics–thank you for your patience. Ann

No worries!
